​Puel coy over whether youngsters will play in EFL Cup final

Southampton boss Claude Puel has been speaking to the media ahead of his side's EFL Cup final with Manchester United on Sunday, reports BBC Sport.

Puel acknowledges that he owes the club's young players for the club progressing earlier in the competition. But will they play at Wembley?

"We started this competition with young players, against Crystal Palace and Sunderland, and they did very well for us," Puel said.

"It's a great moment for the fans, and I hope that we can give them pleasure in this game.

"The last major trophy for the club was in 1976. It would be fantastic to take a good result."
